Thought lost for thirty-five years, this rare concert brings you The Beach Boys at the peak of their performing talents.
Since 1961 The Beach Boys have been spinning their distinctive feel-good sounds, singing about a world where the cars are fast, the waves are always breaking and the girls are the cutest anywhere. And through hundreds of performances and scores of albums, the California "boys next door" have never lost their appeal.
Early in 1964 promoters put together a mega-concert with the hottest artists of the day: the Beatles, Lesley Gore and The Beach Boys. The performances were taped live and aired on closed-circuit TV to packed theatres of screaming fans. It has been renowned as one of the great rock'n'roll concerts of the 60s.
Years later collectors unearthed tapes of the Beatles' portion of the show, and bootleg copies were rampant. The Beach Boys' performance, however, did not turn up and remained lost until 1998. Now digitally mastered, this remarkable concert is available for the first time and shows a rare glimpse of the boys in the early years before band leader Brian Wilson retired from touring with the group. Fans and collectors won't want to pass up this opportunity to sample a taste of music history.
